LAS VEGAS - The World Series Of Poker is set to return to Las Vegas in 2021, after more than two years away.
The WSOP’s return has been assumed by many poker players, but the specifics of the return have been unclear for a while. No longer. On Tuesday, the WSOP released its schedule for 2021, which runs from September 30 through November 23.
There are 88 gold bracelet events on the schedule, and buy-ins for the events range from the cheap ($400) to the wildly expensive ($250,000).
Notably, that $250,000 buy-in is the largest non-charity buy-in in the history of the World Series of Poker.
Of the 88 bracelet events, 51 are Texas Hold ‘Em, 13 are Omaha, 13 are mixed game, six are Stud and five are Draw.
18 of the bracelet events will be televised in some form thanks to the WSOP’s deal with CBS to provide at least 15 hours of content for the network.
In this way, online gambling fans can follow along with some of the action at the hottest WSOP tables.
The Main Event will fire in four flights. One is on November 4, one on November 5, one on November 6, and one on November 7.
As always, the Main Event buy-in will be $10,000, and it will be a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament.
WSOP events will take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and The Rio will be offering reduced rates to those entering WSOP events.
Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series Of Poker, was effusive in his praise for the event, which will be his 16th as the Executive Director.
“Make no mistake, the 2021 WSOP will be the real deal and we’re preparing for a full house. Throughout the storied history of the WSOP, this year will be particularly memorable and we’re preparing for a poker reunion all players can celebrate ,” said Stewart. “We’re beyond thrilled to offer a complete schedule of can’t-miss events including all our flagships and the variety players deserve.”
